More Renovation


Hurricanes Rita and Ike left many houses damaged beyond repair. Some of them had trees through the roof, others had structural damage. Red tags on the doors indicate a structure intended for demolition but it seems to take years. However, when I drove by this house down the street from me, it was clearly there at 10AM and when I returned at 2:15 or so, this truck was sitting where the house used to be–and the heavy equipment operator was busy clearing the lot of the few lovely trees that remained. We will now have a vacant lot with weeds—but perhaps better than a vacant house with transients making themselves at home.
